Sellers insight "When our mother relocated to Torquay in 1987 she immediately identified Babbacombe as her area of choice and felt so extremely fortunate to find such a beautiful home, exactly where she wanted to be. We will always remember her recalling to us that on her first morning living here she opened the curtains, stood and admired the lovely views for a few minutes and said to herself 'I am already very happy here and will never regret moving!'….which certainly proved to be the case for her after 33 happy years living in the bungalow."
"As well as the beautiful sea views into Lyme Bay, one thing that we know that our mother really enjoyed was her garden. It was just the right size for her to enjoy pottering in and she found it to be a quiet, sheltered suntrap, in fact it was her haven."
